. > > you're welcome. filed under "what were they thinking?"---jc penny thought ron johnson would bring the magic from apple to penny's. as ceo, johnson's vision was to freshen up the store's staid image and go after younger, more brand-conscious millennial shoppers. as our cover story explains, it wound up turning into a retail disaster that alienated its customer base before the new one had been lured in. ron johnson's tenure as penny's ceo was short--just 17-months and by many accounts--not at all sweet. his strategy to stock higher-end merchandise and lose the discount coupons drove away the store's value- conscious customer base well before sought-after millennial customers knew the 110-year-old department store chain even existed. "you can't be someone's #5 store on their shopping list if you're trying to reinvent yourself solely through that customer base." sales fell 32% in last year's 4th quarter--when holiday seasonal shopping is at its peak. company stock dropped 53%. the company may have been boring before but analysts say johnson drove it toward the rocks too soon for his v

johnson and butter with their interaction was. >> i found in records and england the passenger lists on various ships that went from american ports to portsmouth and other places in england. i'm pretty sure i found the ship on which frederick bruce thomas crossed the atlantic. what surprised me is how many people very different social and economic backgrounds crossed the atlantic and how readily they did it, how simple it was. you didn't have a passport to do it. you bought a ticket and went. you didn't mean a passport in europe at the time. you could travel from england to france but if you had when it might make things easier when you were trying to prove who did were. i found contemporary descriptions of what it was like and was a surprise for me which was humane practical reasons. the accommodations were not fancy, people were segregated by sex for example. men would be in a cabin with 12 to 15 and women would be in another one but the food was good, the treatment was to maine, there were doctors on board. a newspaper reporter decided to take it to see what it was like so that is

johnson, who was fired tonight from jc -- who is stepping down from the ceo job at j.c. penney, and not a moment too soon. something we will certainly address later on when we remove his ignominious visage from our own wall of shame. we do however believe in our president, and when he says as he did as recently as four weeks ago that the u.s. economy could collapse because of the sequester, he does have the ability to freeze hiring and frighten people beyond belief. did he use the term collapse? i heard the same thing you did. which was to be afraid. be very afraid. now, i didn't know how badly the nation's business psyche was hurt by the president. president obama's endless pronouncements. even as one of my favorite columnists peggy noonan hailed him as the fear monger in chief. the vast majority took the president seriously when he warned of chaos and gigantic layoffs. think about it, are you going to apply for a loan to start a new business if you know there are going to be layoffs that could rival those of 2007 to 2009? are you going to hire more aggressively even as the fe

you surprised? >> not at ale, melissa. we had very strong earnings out of johnson & johnson. coca-cola was up 5.6%. had hca. goldman sachs didn't do well. we saw the up side lookg across many of their banking lines. earnings were good. the market needed to see even if this is a organized global act of terrorism, it wasn't citiwide. that t surprises stopped. that now we recover and figure out what happened in boston. melissa: jason, do youagree with that? >> i agree with the latter part of it. i personally was a little surprised we didn't have some follow-through from yesterday. melissa: yeah. >> a lot of that was confusing with the unwinding of the overcrowded commodities trade and quite frankly i'm, you know, i'm very bullish going into yesterday d today, you can't throw any worse news at the marketplace. this is a very bullish sign going forward. i love the market here and going higher. melissa: kyle, i mean there is kind of two sides to this. ere is what jason just said. it makes you feel very positive the market was able to bounce back. at the same time we saw more security in
johnson to this date. and the board of j.c. penney. i spoke to him a moment ago when it became known that the former ceo took a tour of the new j.c. penney proto type store. he hopes that the new prototype works. that many are counting on it. he described ron johnson during his visit. he has been incredibly critical of as delightful and energetic. he said the shops look good but the customer will decide whether this new thing actually works. we will find out when that first shop is scheduled to open in may. the largest shareholder, has the big long position in j.c. penney was making comments today as well at a conference up in boston and he said the criticism of j.c. penney, and he has been ron johnson's biggest defender and j.c. penney's biggest defender to date. in his words, too much change too quickly without adequate testing and that so far the execution has been -- again, in bill's words, something very close to a disaster. no surprise then that we just found out in the annual report that ron johnson got no bonus. his total pay was $1.9 million after some 50 some on million a y
higher today. i'm talking about johnson & johnson and coka coal la. when you have any kind of selloff it's almost always because of fears about a steep slow down in the economy. now, it's the global economy. yeah, the worries used to be the united states centric. and perhaps the economy had been growing too hot. and the fed was raising rates. perhaps the monthly employment numbers showed a sudden reduction as we saw in the late summer of 2007, which ushered in the great recession. maybe there is a shocking shutdown in retail sales. now, i'm not saying that every single selloff plays out like this, but the vast majority of them actually really do. of course, lately we have a new element. we are all one world these days and a slow down in china is now greeted as more of a threat to our stock market than an actually slow down here in the united states. crazy. but it's true. when you get these kind of jitters, which include the requisite collapse in commodities like oil and copper and the markets sell, sell, sell, can't be combatted overnight because it's so horrendous, it does kind of paral
.c. penney ron johnson ceo has learned you can't take away people's coupons. the department store announced johnson famous for leading retail operations for apple is stepping down and the guy he replaced in 2011 was taking over again. it's been a rough year for the company with shares dropping over 50% and sales down nearly 30%. you can't say johnson failed because he refused to try something different. he offered free hair cuts for kids, for example, more controversially he got rid of sales saying j.c. penney would always offer a fair price. that didn't work. people like sales. so he brought them back. the big question, was this one man stumbling or is there a larger problem with all retail stores? joining me now from los angeles is rocco pendola columnist for the street.com. rocco, can you point to one thing and say, this was johnson's downfall at j.c. penney? >> i don't think so, jake. i think you can certainly say, well the sale thing and bringing it back wasn't a good idea. we always like to focus and hone in on one thing but i think it's a bigger problem. i think it's the j.c. penney
, would be more like jcpenney, which has become like a stone wall ever since ron johnson hit the road. who else can do no right? how about the oil companies? now the united states produces so much oil we don't need to import nearly as much as we used to, as floyd wilson of halcon told us last night. we were actually bringing the price down with our massive supply. oil service companies are holding their breath hoping orders won't be canceled as we wait to hear numbers from schlumberger. and intellectual property service king core labs. how about the mineral and mining companies and the equipment makers who supply them? can analysts cut the numbers fast enough there for freeport or caterpillar? the former makes copper which i now gather from the stock price isn't being used by anybody anywhere, not just pennies. then again, wait a second, they seem to be not using aluminum either, at least judging by the price of alcoa. it is all about the haves and the have nots, and all that's happened during this downturn is that the distance between the two has become wider and the gulf deeper. here's t
10 years saying that -- getting johnson & jn -- johnson saying we're going to get carcinogens first out of our baby products across the whole world and that's really significant because they found formaldehyde in baby's johnson shampoo a few years ago, they tested it a few yearser later and found that johnson & johnson has taken it out of their products in china and other countries but not in the united states, well, if you can do it in one country, why can't you do it in all of them, doesn't everybody deserve safer baby shampoo no matter where they live? that put a lot of pressure on them because the consumers said we don't want those things in our products and the change happened and now they have a plan with timelines and clear transparent goals to get those chemicals out of their products. it might be a little slower than we'd all like as consumers but it's moving in the right direction and getting one major company to move put a lot of pressure on those other companies if they want to maintain their credibility, so we're seeing safer shampoo products, we want to pass laws. >> r

that the market was looking for a reason to sell. mcdonald's and johnson and johnson have been getting a lot of action to the upside, and those are not the stocks that are going to lead this next bull leg up. i think what you really want to look at is the market is ready and due for a correction. we went up, made that all-time high, and it looks like it wants to go lower here now. - gold is down about $250 just in the last nine months or so. has the glitter gone from gold? - you know, cold is at a real key spot here. $1,550 is a level that we have been watching for quite a while. if we break below there, it looks like we are going back into the $1,400s. but if you look at the longer- term trend of gold, since it hit its double-top high of $1,900, it has been in a solid downtrend anyway, and right now i think that every opportunity gold rallies should be a spot to take profit or sell. - and what about this north korea situation? it looks like the u.s. is ramping up by sending missiles into guam. are defense stocks, is that a sector you want to be in right now? - i think that is where you are
